on what were then military interventions. went to panama. went to bosnia. desert storm, of course. by the time 9/11 came, i had a lot of field time. and i had a lot of combat time as a bystander. usually as a terrified bystander. it was a little uncomfortable, because a lot of guys in the military had no exposure to war. there would ask me sometimes, "what is it like?" i had to say, i am not a soldier. i do not participate. i just watch it happen and write about it. then, of course, 9/11 came. we went to afghanistan and iraq. pretty soon, we have a whole generation of really combat hardened veterans. >> different organizations to work for? >> time magazine, when i was in africa. i worked at "the washington star" for a year before it collapsed. i went to the l.a. times and covered the pentagon. i worked for a small newspaper wire service in washington, a great job. it folded and i went to the baltimore sun. they laid me off when they were closing the washington bureau. i went to aol, a little website called "politics daily." the net merged with the huffington post, i went to the hu

, the caribbean, the panama canal, the north atlantic. 35-foot seas. that was exciting. she is a battleship. you take a look around and you will see why. this is where all the big decisions of the war were made back in world war ii in the '40s. you get chills coming into a place like this. we helped to shell korea, the russians were like, look at that ship. back in the '40s, during the conference, president roosevelt was on board the ship so he took this and used it as his taxi to go across the ocean to meet with churchill and stalin. he was in a wheelchair, as you know. this was where he stayed. because this is the only ship in the navy with a bathtub. past, present and future. president roosevelt took a bath in this bathtub. in the '80 they retro fitted the ship and these are for anti-aircraft and we could bombard the shore, too. they would fire 15 rounds a minute. here's one of her guns. 16 inch in diameter. i could fit in there. each one of these barrels, 67 feet long. fire a projectile 24 miles. one day i fired the guns, too. i did not hear the boom like you would out here but i felt the co
about passage of the panama, colombia, and korea free trade agreements, and once again they are providing tremendous leadership on our goal of creating good american jobs by prying open that mark and ensuring that the united states worker will have access to it. if you think about not only creating jobs here, but dealing with the problems of crony capitalism, dealing with the problems of a massive bureaucracy, and dealing with a corrupt court system which is what exists under putin today, this is the right thing for us to do. we should not lose access to the market. i also want to note that my very good friend, mr. herger, who has been a great leader on the issue of trade is here, mr. berg is here who has very involved in this. i would be happy to yield to my friend from new york, mr. reed, who has played an important role on this issue. mr. reed: i thank the gentleman. i rise today in strong support to join my friend from california as he knows we have been supportive of free trade from the moment we got here. i was so pleased to see colombia, panama, and south korea b
the panama and then across the is mas -- is mas -- isthmus of panama and up the coast of california. my own relatives took advantage of the two infrastructure projects you talked about. however, your governor was building off some of the work of the founding fathers. a lot of talk about here that there's no role for government in the economy. george washington disagreed. his treasury secretary, alexander hamilton, disagree. they had a debate with jefferson who thought that we ought to be an agrarian state and george washington and hamilton thought there was a role for industrial and manufacturing. so george washington in his very first days as president put -- told alexander hamilton to put together an industrial policy for america. and there were about, i think, nine points or maybe 12 points in that industrial policy. one of them was, build the infrastructure. specifically it said canals and harbors. this gos back to the very beginning of our country, what the president wanted to do and what us democrats want to do is build the infrastructure. the foundation upon which the economy grows.
, south korea and panama because we believe in the sale and the opportunity for american producers to sell their product around the globe. and yet, we saw at least some who at usda have the view that we need to be discouraging the consumption of meat for both environmental and health reasons. particularly troublesome is the fact that the department of agriculture was citing the united nations as a reason that we ought to discourage the consumption of beef for environmental reasons. our department of agriculture' positions ought to be based on sound science, not some u.n. study. beef is an important and vital component of the kansas economy. we're the second-largest beef-producing state in the country. economic impact to our country is around $44 billion. exports in 2011, beef exports were over $4.08 billion. this matters to us greatly. and this is happening at a time in which the cattle producers of kansas and across the midwest, including the state of the president today, the drought is so damaging to us. it's also happening at a time in which we've been having a debate about a farm bill.
the mud, look what happened in latin america with columbia and panama, allies of ours in the free trade agreements. there is no strong foreign policy coming out of the administration. i don't think at the end of the day they want to campaign on foreign policy either, because it's one of weakness. it is why we have so much instability around the world because people don't know where the united states stands. we need to stand up for those who are fighting for their freedom. we need to do what is right by the people of the united states and around the world. >> shannon: you are running for senate. you have a primary august 14 and then hope to go head to head -- moving beyond that. the senate very much in play to a lot of folks. but do you think it's realistic for the g.o.p. to pick up a significant number of seats this is fall? >> i do, for a number of reasons. one, the economy is in such bad shape. it has to do with the policies that have come out from president obama and lock-step liberals that think that government is the answer to all of our problems. when you have a weak foreign polic
. most financial investors money came from corporations registered in panama, then one of the world's most secretive business jurisdictions, offering a confidentiality intense advantages. previously unreleased details and other public records -- bain capital was emeshed in the largely opaque world of international high finance from its inception. romney faces increasing criticism for his own involvement in exotic offshore investment funds. that is front page of the chicago tribune this morning. and the lead story in the miami herald is -- in congress, few released their congress. nancy pelosi was an phatic. mitt romney the's to release more than two years of his tax return, it makes him unfit to win confirmation as a member of the president's cabinet, let alone hold the high office himself. harry reid went further. his refusal to make public tax record makes him unfit to be a dogcatcher. they do not think that standard of transparency should apply to them. the democratic leaders of the senate and house are among hundreds of senators and representatives from both parties who refused
? >why? >> i can go back to the invasion of panama in 1989 and worked for. we realize that just having a military battle you had one was not the end of the game. perhaps we should have done at the beginning to avoid that battle in the first time -- place or, having won the battle, how do we preserve the peace? >> you have to be careful when we talk about these terms such as smart power or heart power or soft power. i'm reminded of a conversation i had with the former archbishop of canterbury in 2003. you might have been there. it was on the eve of the second gulf war. the archbishops stood up and said, general powell, why don't we just use soft power? it was a critique of what we were getting ready to do. the answer i gave him was that it was not soft power that rescue britain from hitler. it was part power. you had to have all of it. when we won with hard power in world war ii, we use soft power in germany and asia to create democracies. the importance of this coalition, what makes what we are doing tonight so important, is that we understand that we need it all. we have been shortcha
, in norman di, england, mexico city, and panama, we have 140,000 crosses or other symbols that might be projected as being religious. sadly, what we've got going on in san diego, it's those who claim in the name of religious tolerance, want to destroy our war memorials, if anyone takes offense to this, all this does, we're -- all this says, we're not going to tear down the four million crosses on the veterans' memorials across the country and we're not going to tear down or use any funds from this budget to tear down the war memorial that stands on top of mount soledad at la jolla, san diego, california. i hope my colleagues can say in the spirit of tolerance, no one needs to go out and be so intolerant as to tear down war memorials because somebody may claim it may have a religious connotation. god knows, we don't want to start tearing down the four million crosses that exist today or those thousands of star of davids that proudly sit today on veterans and federal property. >> will the gentleman yield? mr. bilbray: yes. mr. free ling -- mr. young: we support your amendment. mr. bilb
the free trade agreement with colombia, panama and south korea. we are already seeing the economic benefits of that in south florida. imagine in if we were able to do that with more countries in a free and fair way. has to be fair. one last thing we could probably do to help grow this economy is deal with the long-term debt. that's what it is, it's a long-term debt problem that hovers over all over this conversation and creates some uncertainty. people are afraid especially people with lots of money are afraid to investigate in the american -- invest in the america economy, and they think that country is destined for confiscatory tax rates. they're going where europe is going. we don't want to invest in a country that will wind up like europe in five years. that's why we have to deal with the long-term debt and the sooner the better. and to deal with the long-term debt, by the way, you have to deal what with what's causing it. that's why it's so important we save medicare. medicare is a very important program. my mother is on medicare. i would never support anything that hurts my mother or
